April is Earth Month, and it’s an important time for all of us to reflect on our relationship with the planet and take action to protect it. Earth Day, which falls on April 22nd, has been celebrated since 1970 and has since become a global movement, bringing people together from all walks of life to work towards a healthier, more sustainable world. It is a day to celebrate the natural beauty of our planet and to commit to protecting it for future generations.
Despite the many challenges facing our planet, there is reason for optimism. By supporting nonprofits that work towards environmental protection, restoration, and sustainability, we can take meaningful action and make a positive impact on our world. From planting trees to reducing carbon emissions, there are many ways we can contribute to a healthier, happier planet.
There are many nonprofits and organizations doing important work to protect the earth. Below are five recommendations for nonprofits to support this Earth Day:
